Help your student become a(n) Serial Orderer to 5 (Comparing Number)

Activities help children place sets of 1-5 or lengths (such as made from connecting cubes) in order, by helping child count and find the next number,  initially limiting the number and gradually increasing it, or initially using perceptually different materials (e.g., lengths that are obviously different in size or sets of 1, 3, and 5).
